A REMINDER REGARDING M.A.B.A.'s POLICY ON LIGHTNING SAFETY: Whenever thunderstorms are in the area of any game or event, M.A.B.A. policy is to immediately GET THE PLAYERS, COACHES and FANS off the field and to safety.That means under cover, not running around a parking lot or anywhere near the field.We urge the use of an emergency weather app such as Weatherbug which has an alert setting indicating lightning in the area.
Safety comes first at all times -- Have an enjoyable season but please use common sense on the field. No victory is worth jeopardizing the safety of any players or fans.

This action parallels many other national organizations including USSSA and Ripken Baseball. We understand that these are very expensive bats and are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We never like to make rule or policy changes during the season but the safety of our players is, and will always be, our first priority and these bats have been determined (by DiMarini) to be dangerous.
